Since 1948, the Middle Atlantic Blind Golf Association, a 501c(3) nonprofit volunteer membership organization, has been providing blind and vision impaired (legally blind) men, women and children the opportunity to enjoy the challenges and rewards that golf offers. Click on the following link to see a short video on MABGA.

Today, MABGA has over 100 totally blind, visually impaired golfers and coaches, with another 78 junior blind golfers. Our Junior Golf program has expanded to North Jersey. We are proud to announce the completion of the Kritz Links, located on the grounds of the New York Institute for Special Education located in Bronx, New York. See our Junior Golf Page for the full article. This is the second course built by MABGA, the first being at the Overbrook School for the blind located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Our members participate in approximately 35 golf outings each year, as well as a special outing with a local PGA Professional as a partner, along with our Annual Fund-Raising Charity Tournament.

The Middle Atlantic Blind Golf Association is a totally self-sustaining organization providing our programs through dues, donations and our Annual Fund-Raising Charity Event.

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we will be taking precautions and asking everyone to be mindful about social distancing, limiting personal close contact with other golfers and to wear a mask when in public. We will also coordinate with the courses to arrange for lunches in the safest manor possible. Those precautions will look different depending on what guidelines the courses has implemented at their facilities. We have dropped our policy of requiring proof of COVID vaccination in order to participate in our events.
